Illinois Senators consider car smoking ban

   Illinois lawmakers are considering a measure that would make it illegal for adults to smoke in a motor vehicle if there are children present.  Officials with the American Lung Association say they support the measure as a way to educate parents about the dangers of second-hand smoke to their child.  

   Senate bill 2659 would make it illegal to smoke with a minor in the vehicle.  Violators would face a one-hundred-dollar fine, but police wouldn't be able to pull drivers over just for violate the smoking ban.  

   Fourteen other states are considering similar measures.  Five states, including Arkansas and Louisiana have already made smoke-free cars the law.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A group of Missouri lawmakers joined health care advocates to outline a plan aimed at reducing the cost of pill-form chemotherapy.
The proposed legislation would require insurance companies to levy the same out-of-pocket costs for oral chemotherapy as they do for the traditional intravenous treatment.
The American Cancer Society said Wednesday that insurance companies can charge higher co-payments and deductibles for chemotherapy pills.
The proposed measure would impact only health plans that provide coverage for both types of treatments.
Rep. Sheila Solon, a Republican from Blue Springs, says the legislation would not increase premiums for cancer patients.
Twenty-seven other states and the District of Columbia have passed similar measures seeking to reduce the cost of the chemotherapy pills.
